About Us

Find out about TAFEP's Vision and Mission.


The Tripartite Alliance for Fair and Progressive Employment Practices (TAFEP) was set up in 2006 by the tripartite partners (Ministry of Manpower, National Trades Union Congress, and Singapore National Employers Federation), to promote the adoption of fair, responsible and progressive employment practices.

TAFEP is one of three agencies under Tripartite Alliance Limited (TAL), along with the Tripartite Alliance for Dispute Management (TADM) and the Workplace Safety and Health Council (WSHC).

TAFEP helps employers build workplaces where employees are respected, valued and able to achieve their fullest potential, for the success of the organisation.

Employers can approach TAFEP for tools, resource materials and assistance to implement fair and progressive practices at their workplaces.

Employees or individuals who encounter workplace discrimination or harassment can seek assistance and advice from TAFEP.
